The name Roulot is now a synonym for the very best wine that the village of Meursault can offer. It is rather remarkable when you consider that just 2 generations back the Roulot's were known as producers of Burgundian brandy and eau de vie. Guy Roulot then began leveraging the family's distilling success to purchase small plots of vines in Meursault and by the 1970's was known as a pioneer for producing top quality chardonnay from distinct parcels or "lieu-dits".

When Guy passed away unexpectedly in the early '80's his son Jean-Marc was pursuing acting in Paris. In 1989 he returned to take on the reigns of the small Domaine and in the following decades built on his fathers success so well that the wines are now extremely hard to acquire and to afford for most of us.

Professional Reviews

Burghound

BH 92-94
"This is also softly exotic with even more floral influence on the essence of spiced pear and tangerine peel nuances. The caressing and exceptionally rich medium-bodied flavors possess more volume if perhaps not quite the refinement, all wrapped in a powerful, focused and stony finish. This too is really very good and a wine that should amply reward extended keeping." -Allen Meadow
